funniest comedy in years
10 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was a property guardian for a while, which is why I was intrigued to watch this show. Although it's more about people living their 20-somethings lives in the city than being a guardian, I'm so grateful I found it, as it is, without doubt, the funniest comedy on British TV in years.

In the place of the usual two dimensional, obvious, sketches of characters that frequent so many sitcoms this group feel so real, vulnerable and complex. It's a bonus that this show is genuinely funny, for it could pass for a drama for all it's attention to the emotional aspects of the characters journeys. It's also shot brilliantly. Again, almost like a drama. The cast are fantastic. Particularly the women. But all the actors are as unafraid of playing the ruder comedy as they are to play the emotional truth of each character.

There are so many twists and turns and some hilarious set pieces - the girl getting stuck in her jumpsuit in the toilet... the *mess* Kate makes on the floor... and there is a hilarious prank call that.. as everything else, packs an emotional punch too. I never know what's coming next and that's what's led me back time again.

Lots of people are saying that this show should be longer. It manages to cram so much into such a short amount of time, but I always feel robbed at the end.

Also. Kathy Burke is in it for one episode! Kathy Burke! And she is absolutely HILARIOUS as a posh old soak... a sort of female Uncle Monty. Just so funny. I wish she would do more acting.

In short, it's safe to say I am a Crashing fan and hope there will be many more series in the future. It's restored my faith in eccentric British comedies to be proud of.
